Transferred Embryos

The VAS Platform Embryo module allows you to enter Embryo Transfer events in the mobile app, send the updates back to DairyComp, and view a list of all Transferred Embryos in the Platform. This topic explains the Transferred Embryos page in the web version of the Platform, which allows you to view all embryo transfers that were completed in the Platform mobile app. (If you need help creating an Embryo Transfer event, see the Embryo Transfer Event (Platform Event) topic in the Mobile App section of this online help.)

To view the Transferred Embryos list, log in to the web version of the Platform and select DairyComp > Transferred Embryos from the Feature Navigation Bar. As shown in the image below, you can filter the list with the options at the top of the page and view the following details for all completed embryo transfers:

1

Use the drop‑down options at the top of the page to filter the list of Transferred Embryos:

2

As you filter the list, the number of matching records is displayed at the top left of the page, beneath the filter fields. If no filters are applied, this number indicates the total number of transferred embryos that are included in the list. This information is also displayed at the bottom left of the list so that it is visible when you scroll down the page.

3

Click the Clear button to the right of the filter fields to clear all of your filters and view the full list of Transferred Embryos.

4

Recipient: This column lists the IDAnimal identifier number of the recipient female that received the embryo transfer. Click the ID number to view her CowCard.

5

Date: The date that the embryo was transferred into the recipient female, which is the date that the Embryo Transfer event for the recipient female was created.

6

Sire: Indicates which bull’s semen was used to fertilize the oocyteAn unfertilized egg.. If this column shows Pool, it means that an oocyte was fertilized by IVF from a pool containing the semen of multiple sires.

7

Donor: The donor female who provided the embryo or oocyte (sometimes referred to as the donor dam). If this animal is part of your herd, the system displays her ID number as a link that you can click to view her CowCard.

8

TechnicianTech is short for Technician.: The technician who transferred the embryo into the recipient female.

9

BRCode: The breeding code for the recipient female.

10

Stage: The stage at which the embryo was harvested:

  • 1 = Unfertilized
  • 2 = Simple Celled
  • 3 = Early Morula
  • 4 = Morula
  • 5 = Early Blastocyst
  • 6 = Blastocyst
  • 7 = Expanded Blastocyst
  • 8 = Hatched Blastocyst
  • 9 = Expanded and Hatched Blastocyst

NOTE: While Stage and Grade may often be recorded together during harvesting, the Platform allows you to define them separately for easier analysis and searching.

11

Grade: The quality of the embryo:

  • 1 = Good
  • 2 = Fair
  • 3 = Poor
  • 4 = Dead (or Degenerating)

NOTE: While Stage and Grade may often be recorded together during harvesting, the Platform allows you to define them separately for easier analysis and searching.

12

Storage: The embryo storage method. This indicates whether it was stored as a Fresh or Frozen embryo prior to being transferred into the recipient female.

13

Type: The harvest method used:

  • Flush (for embryos)
  • IVF (In Vitro Fertilization - for oocytesUnfertilized eggs.)
  • Other (for when the harvest method was neither of the above)

14

EBRDEmbryo Breed: The oocyte/embryo breed. The codes shown here are from the standard list of NAABNational Association of Animal Breeders. www.naab-css.org breeds.

15

EAGEEmbryo Age: The age of the embryo from fertilization to the date it was frozen or transferred into a recipient female, whichever came first.

16

Use this setting to adjust how many records are displayed on each page. This option is also displayed at the bottom right of the list so that it is visible when you scroll down the page.
